Students to submit ideas on how to beat hate crimes
January 08 2010
A Devon teacher is becoming part of a judging panel for a competition among schoolchildren across the country to find ways to beat hate crime, a report has said.
Crediton teacher Mark Baptist, a humanities teacher at Queen Elizabeth's Community College in Crediton, was very keen to participate somehow in the competition, the news report added.
"Racism isn't a big problem in Devon but the county is not a very multicultural place. When I take pupils to big cities they interact with youngsters from other backgrounds. I can see the change in them when they get back," Mr Baptist was quoted as saying by the Express & Echo.
Staff at schools in Devon are encouraging students to think about prejudice and ways to tackle it.
The news comes as a county-wide competition is being run by the prejudice and hate crime prevention task group to avoid this issue in the classroom.
